camera Sony A7 III

Andy has always had a passion for art and creativity, which is evident in his career as a concept and 3D artist in the film and visual effects industry. With a natural understanding of color theory, composition, and storytelling, Andy found that photography was a natural transition for him. Andy began his career as a photographer with family photos and a short stint in wedding photography, but it was fitness photography that he truly found his niche in. Based in the Bay Area, Andy developed a brand in this niche and was able to transition into commercial shooting with fashion. However, it was as an art photographer in the fitness industry that Andy truly found his calling. He has a talent for capturing the beauty and aesthetics of the human body, movement, and kinesiology in his photographs. Through his experience and training, Andy has honed his skills as a photographer and is dedicated to capturing beautiful and meaningful images.

Kelvin has been taking pictures since he was a kid. He almost got a Fine Art major in photography but he figured it would be hard to earn a decent living as a photographer. He ended up getting a computer science degree and kept photography as a hobby. About 10 years ago, he started charging for my photography as way to make more money, so he can buy more camera equipment. Recently, he has been taking menu photos for DoorDash and he can see how the pandemic devastates the food industry. So he wants to continue use his photography skill to help the community wherever he can.
